  2. Re: 1978 402 mercury outboard help water in carb

  5. Re: Two very small round holes on lower unit (1975 Mercury 4.5hp)

    You're just looking for the static difference between a known "good cylinder" that is 160 psi and one of your suspect cylinders that is say 75 psi because of the gasket leak, "There's your sign"!

    Re: 1991 115 shift question

    It should be able to shift from reverse to forward in about 180 degrees of rotation with some additional free rotation after it goes into forward gear so something is wrong. Did anyone by chance...

  18. Re: Fuel line replacement on a 1969 800E 80HPe

    No help from the factory 1966-1974 Master service manual. The bottom pan that is giving you the interference challenge to gain access to the lower fuel pump is pretty much sandwiched between the...
